The CASTLE of San Pelagio has medieval origins (14th cent.) as evidenced by the 14th-century tower of the Da Carrara family, Lords of Padua.
In the 18th century the property passed to the Venetian family of the Zaborra Counts who adapted it as a stately residence and built barchesse for agricultural use.
Since then the Zaborra family has inhabited the castle.
It was from here, on August 9, 1918, that the Poet Gabriele d’Annunzio left for the famous feat of the Flight over Vienna, and its rooms bear witness to his passage.
Other rooms house a FLIGHT MUSEUM with the history and evolution of flying machines.
Getting lost in the LABYRINTHS and strolling through the PARK OF THE ROSES will make you enjoy the beauty and harmony of a three-hectare park included in the GREAT ITALIAN GARDENS network.
The MEDIEVAL BORGO of Pontemanco has very ancient origins and today is one of the most picturesque corners of the southeastern area of the province of Padua, a few kilometers away from the Terme area.
It rises on two inhabited nuclei arranged along the banks of the Biancolino canal: one centered around Villa Sperandio, the other near Villa Grimani Fortini and the beautiful Oratory of Santissima Annunciata.
The Borgo still houses the oldest mill in all of northern Italy, declared of special monumental interest by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities.
THE CELLAR “LA MINCANA” once used by a noble and powerful Venetian family to follow the work of the fields.
Today as then do the current owners.
Dal Martello, generation after generation has handed down the passion for cultivation, occupies an area of about 60 ha, of which 19 are planted with vineyards.
